Abstract—The aim of the present study was to improve quality of dried alkaline noodle made from rice flour by utilization of transglutaminase at difference concentrations (0, 1, 2, 3 and 4 g/ 100 g flour). The transglutaminase activated protein crosslinking according to SDS-PAGE protein patterns and the decrease amount of free amino groups. The increase amount of transglutaminase increased cooking yield, hardness, and tensile strength, while decreased cooking loss and adhesiveness of alkaline rice noodle. According to the optimum of cooking properties, textural properties and sensory characteristics, the 3 and 4 % of transglutaminase was recommended for quality improvement of alkaline noodle from rice flour.
